What is the difference between the gwak shu sweeping hand and the locking hand?

Correct. Locking hand uses the outer wrist hook to apply pressure and control the opponent.

Gwak shu also uses the outer wrist hook but seeks to deflect, sweep away to the outside the incoming force.

They are two distinct hand skills.  But both have a common use of the outer wrist hook.
